Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Toledo area of Ohio? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Toledo area of Ohio,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
(see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "Eatwell", "pickit" and the ones that ends with ".farm"; they do not verify or update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China,
as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.
Since 2002, I make updates daily (each farm as
changes are reported, or I find it). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!
I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find
anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -
please let me know!

"This is a great U Pick apple farm, as well as strawberry, raspberry,
pumpkin, and other things. There are a good selection of apple varieties,
and enough of each variety, there was no problem picking a couple of
bushels. Highly recommended in NW Ohio, there aren't alot of U Picks around
Comments from a visitor on October 27, 2009: "I LOVE
Johnston's! The kids like to play at the petting zoo and you can shop while
